MPMC Wolverton Station indecent assault appeal

Do you recognise this man who is wanted in connection with a case of indecent behaviour at Wolverton Station?

The incident happened at around 6pm on Sunday, May 17, when three women on platform two reported seeing a man on platform one with his hands down his trousers performing an indecent act. It’s believed he then left the station.

PC Liam Deasley, of British Transport Police, said: “We want the rail network to be a safe and pleasant place for passengers, and do not tolerate any sexual behaviour at stations or on trains.

“As part of our investigation, we have spoken to local people and examined CCTV.

“I think the man in the image has information about this incident. Please tell us who he is.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference MSUB/B3 of 15/06/2015. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

This appeal follows the recent launch of BTP’s Report it to stop it campaign, which aims to further increase the reporting of unwanted sexual behaviour on the rail network.

The high-profile online campaign aims to build on the success of Project Guardian, a long-term initiative to increase awareness and confidence amongst the public to report sexual offences. Particularly those offences which are often unreported, such as sexual touching, exposure, outraging public decency, lewd comments, leering and harassment.

Every day, plain clothes and uniformed BTP officers patrol the rail network to identify offenders and prevent crime. Victims of unwanted sexual behaviour can report it to BTP by text on 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40.
